I want to make a travel ring - one that I can wear while hiking, sight-seeing, driving through the country, horseback riding, etc. (so durable). I''m going to set my new grossular garnet in it - it''s 5.5 mm and I want a comfy ring that will also protect the stone (I just hate not wearing rings, and I don''t want to take anything delicate or expensive along). Any ideas? I think I want it to be bezeled for safety, but I''m open to other styles. No diamonds or pave or anything. Not sure on rose gold or white gold - any opinions on which would look best? It has a yellow tinge to it, very faint - it looks like a warm diamond.

Thanks!

Here is the garnet:

Hi BEG,

A bezel is what I automatically thought of too! What is your budget?

Hi Ellen!

I''m thinking under $500 (as far under as possible). Do you think that''s possible?

I''m working with the Natural Sapphire co right now on a project, they have rose gold (14k and 18k) and a ton of bezels! http://www.thenaturalsapphirecompany.com/Sapphires/Mountings/Rings/


Or, the seller liebcor on ebay has very inexpensive rose gold settings http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/liebcor_W0QQ_dmdZ1QQ_ipgZ50QQ_sopZ12 I have never purchased from them, but there are some on here who have!
Good call on NSC - thanks! I e-mailed them about a bezel setting - I hope the pricing works out!

Threadjack: IWPO - Holy Gorgeous AVATAR!!!
awww, thanksgeckodani! The big one is in my wedding thread over in BIW
Seriously, looks like a magazine pose or something from a classic hollywood movie. I saw it in your BIW thread, but it makes a really striking avatar! Va-voom much?



BEG - I really like that WF bezel too! The Natural Sapphire Company has some bezel settings. You''d have to ask about pricing, but the last time I checked they weren''t too bad. Here are two - they have more!
